Track Name: Catharsis
Black serpent
Venom trap
I am your servant
And you are mine

Mind control
Oppression by fear
Gave you my soul
And you still take my tears

Blood
Will let me be
Death
Will set me free

Why did I change?
Should I just flee?
This feeling is so strange
But it's too late for me

The grave is ready
I am now pure
Release my body
My fate is secure

Blood
Will let me be
Death
Will set me free

Why did I change?
Should I just flee?
This feeling is so strange
But it's too late for me

This hell I left
This peace I meet
I am your servant
I'm at you're feet

Blood
Will let me be
Death
Will set me free

Why did I change?
Should I just flee?
This feeling is so strange
But it's too late for me

Written by : Tiago Martins
Track Name: The Exile
Lonely man
Filled with regret
Waiting to die alone

A castle of nothing
A spiral of emptiness
I am forgotten

Everyone has nothing
But we all have everything

The power to change
The option to regret
Start over, this is our new begging

Destroy our dark past
Our host cries
Our earth weeps
With numerous tries
We become immortal creeps

The 3 tomoe eye
That sees everything
Mourn our blackened skies
That we destroy for nothing

What happens now?

Lonely man
Filled with regret
Waiting to die alone

A castle of nothing
A spiral of emptiness
I am forgotten

The 3 tomoe eye
That sees everything
Mourn our blackened skies
That we destroy for nothing

What happens now?

The power to change
The option to regret
Start over, this is our new begging

Destroy our dark past
Our host cries
Our earth weeps
With numerous tries
We become immortal creeps

Written by : Tiago Martins
Track Name: Rupture
Failure chases me, disappointment, I'm falling
I lost another fight, perpetual, accepting
Into this black hole again, I'm tired of running
Angels deny me, forever rejected

Always promising, you're faith betrayed
Lies that I continue, my soul decayed

The venom spreads, I wonder in silence
The tears that destroy me, devours, erases me
The start of death, the end of life
The cycle ends, like sand in my hands

As long as I breathe, I can hope for demise
The everlasting anger, that burns in my eyes
The song of Gaia, has been sung at dawn
I was cursed, before I was born

Always promising, you're faith betrayed
Lies that I continue, my soul decayed

The venom spreads, I wonder in silence
The tears that destroy me, devours, erases me
The start of death, the end of life
The cycle ends, like sand in my hands

Written by: Tiago Martins
Track Name: Imprisoned
This new begging
This place I hate
This lonely feeling
I suffocate

Can't feel myself no more
Can't see your thoughts
The half open door
The heart that rots

No place left to crawl
The ending of it all

My blood is sand
My eyes are dust
Biting the feeding hand
In fake gods I trust

The hell I dream
It’s the hell I feel
Illusion is over
My mind's set to kill

No place left to crawl
The ending of it all

Written by : Tiago Martins
Track Name: The Catalyst
Crawling through madness
As if there is no sun
Darkness eroding
What have I become?

Taking lives, as they are given
Creating pain, as we fall
Our scraped sky's cry
To show we got nothing at all

I am the catalyst
The trigger, the gun
I make things happen
But I'm the weakest one

Written by : Tiago Martins
Track Name: Obsolete
Denied by life
Crucified by pain
Salvation not found
Are we waiting in vain?

What is matter or time?
Why is life a grain of sand?
The universe is a wall
I am the wall
You are the wall
We are the wall

Nowhere to run
An ocean of sadness
No place to call our home
We embrace our own madness

We won't embrace

Believe the lies
Lose yourself 
Time flies
You'll mourn my death

What is matter or time?
Why is life a grain of sand?
The universe is a wall
I am the wall
You are the wall
We are the wall

I won’t forget
I won’t forgive
The pain you caused
I was deceived

Fuck off!
Let me live
In my mind, I am what you did
And now I cry, unfortunate by you
Depraved by fate, and killed by death

Written by : Mp & Tiago Martins
Track Name: Denied and Broken (ft. Andrés Malta)
What will I lose tomorrow?
Can't see the light of day
A world drowned in sorrow
It's needless to say

An action without consequence
Like a bullet without a shell
A glaze of indifference
Magic without a spell

All of our dreams
Denied and broken
It's not as it seems
Our faith is stolen

The rose that blossoms
In the sky
Kill our emotions
And we don't know why

An action without consequence
Like a bullet without a shell
A glaze of indifference
Magic without a spell

All of our dreams
Denied and broken
It's not as it seems
Our faith is stolen

Written by : Tiago Martins
Track Name: Origin
Instrumental
Track Name: Salvaging
If you look back
You won't see me
I'll erase myself
From your memory

Don't take a step
Without walking
You're sinking in
You're falling down

There is a barrier
That erodes us
There is a vacuum
That seeds mistrust

Salvage what you can
Take all that's left
I have no more plans
You and I can't stand

I've seen what you done
I know my name
Trying to brake me down
You're killing me

Down to my past
I forsake my death
All I see is you
But I'm dead inside

In hell I stand
Waiting for you
But in my grave
I failed to live

Written by: Mp & Tiago Martins
Track Name: Fake Symptom (ft. André Snake Macedo)
Faking symptoms
My own denial
This false disease
I'm on my knees

Irregular pattern
Cycle of frustration
The choice you made
The debt I’ve paid

Rejecting your flesh
You're rejecting yourself
I always tried to help
Even though you've put me through hell

Your presence tires me
I am no longer free
I cast myself aside
I lost my will, but I still have my pride

The tears I dropped for you
Don't mean that I gave up
The years I lost for you
You gave them all for lust

Rejecting your flesh
You're rejecting yourself
I always tried to help
Even though you've put me through hell

Your presence tires me
I am no longer free
I cast myself aside
I lost my will, but I still have my pride

All the limits that you break
All the memories that you take
This hole in me is you
I will never forget

Written by : Tiago Martins
Track Name: My Redemption
My Redemption, begins today
A self-consuming hate, I can't wash away
You're becoming, a monster of lies
A feeding Frenzy that will eat you alive

To wake up again
To fall down again
Ignoring the pain
You're falling again

Your redemption ends my life now
Failed creation! You're going down!
Your conception, is full of hate
My Redemption, ignoble trace!

To wake up again
To fall down again
Ignoring the pain
You're falling again
